Q&A and Face Behind the Nails Reveal!!

Hi everyone!

Today is the day! My Q&A and Face Behind the Nails reveal is officially up on my YouTube channel. It's crazy to think that I've been doing this for 5 years and never shown my face!

I'm both excited and nervous to share this video, but I think it will be so great to open the opportunity for a new chapter on YouTube. I want to assure you all that my nail tutorials are not going away! I will still be doing mostly nail art and nail tutorials, so don't worry if that's the kind of content you subscribed for. My channel name is NailsByErin, after all 😄

For the longest time I've just felt a little disconnected from all of you, and that my social media/YouTube videos have been too impersonal. I want to be able to talk to you guys face-to-face (face-to-camera...?) so hopefully now that I've done my face reveal, I can do more fun and personal content for you all.

Be sure to leave me comments with more questions if you have any, or let me know what videos you would like to see for the future!

Check out the video here:

Thank you again for your constant support over the past 5 years. I'm so excited for what's to come!

3,000 YouTube Subscribers!!! | Q&A and #facebehindthenails Reveal Coming Soon

Hi everyone!

I have a super exciting announcement! Just last week, I hit 3,000 YouTube subscribers. And as promised, I will be doing a #facebehindthenails reveal to celebrate!

I have been wanting to do a sit-down video for a while now, just to change up my content and connect with you guys better. I think being able to talk to you (or talk to you through a camera 😉) I'll be able to make much more engaging and personal content.

Bomb Pop Fourth of July Nails | NailsByErin

Hi everyone!

Today I have a super easy 4th of July nail design to share with all of you.

A few weeks ago, Sarah from 25Sweetpeas asked me to participate in her Summer Magazine Collaboration, themed around the Fourth of July! I highly recommend checking out the full magazine; it is filled with amazing nail designs, music playlists, food, fashion, and more from some amazing nail bloggers.

You can find the Summer Magazine here.

Now, onto the nails!

Rose Gold X Nails | Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Review | NailsByErin

Hi everyone!

Once again, I have to apologize for my hiatus. I took a break from doing a ton of nail blogging to focus on finishing up my sophomore year at college. It was a crazy semester!

Now that it's summer, I've been working full time and I'll admit, sometimes I feel like I'm running low on inspiration. Not to mention my nails have been constantly breaking... But I was able to grow them out long enough to do this simple rose gold and blush nail art!

I did this nail design using three polishes from the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line.

The shades I used were "Buff and Tumble", "White on Time", and "Petal to the Metal". I just thought these pink-toned shades went together so well! I think this is a beautiful color combination. I also used the Snail Vinyls Right Angle vinyls to create the design on my ring finger, and used dotting tools for the small accents on my pinky and index nails.

This was my first time using the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes, and I have to say that I was impressed! The brush is perfectly designed (very much like the usual Sally Hansen brush) and makes for an easy application with a nearly perfect cuticle line. I also found these polishes to be very self-leveling! And at the price, it's hard to beat. I can't speak for the longevity yet, as I haven't worn one for longer than a day, but hopefully I'll be publishing a more in-depth swatch/review of one of these shades soon.

The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes go for $4.99 a bottle and can be found at Ulta, CVS, and Walgreens.

This is a pretty simple design, but if you're interested in seeing how I created it, then you can check out my YouTube tutorial here!
